Forget WiFi, Connect to the Internet Through Lightbulbs

Quote:
One German physicist, Harald Haas, has come up with a solution he calls “data through illumination”—taking the fiber out of fiber optics by sending data through an LED lightbulb that varies in intensity faster than the human eye can follow. It’s the same idea behind infrared remote controls, but far more powerful.

Haas says his invention, which he calls D-Light, can produce data rates faster than 10 megabits per second, which is speedier than your average broadband connection. He envisions a future where data for laptops, smartphones, and tablets is transmitted through the light in a room. And security would be a snap—if you can’t see the light, you can’t access the data.

I'll have to get a couple of them for my thumbs.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Why, with this I could pull a tiny ball of light out of my nose and bum!

That's pretty funny....I missed that one.....used to watch SNL a lot more regularly.

Think of how much brighter the new ones will be with all those megabytes.
